Love the Lord

www.bible.com/1713/deu.6.5.csb

Leave nothing out. Love with all your being. Surrender all to the Lord who is God. Purge yourself of unwanted desires. Submit to the One who is God and He will bless you, calling you His own child. Pursue the interests of the Lord and He will sustain you. Do not give in to temptation. Resist the Devil and he will flee from you. Offer yourself as a pure and holy sacrifice for this is the will of God.

Understand that this first and best commandment of God encompassed all the others. Love God with all your being and you will find yourself loving all those made in His image, especially your neighbors and this who cal Him God as well. Love one another and you will satisfy Jesus’ great commandment. Wear no mask before your brother in Christ. Commit no hypocrisy with him because you need accountability and encouragement above all from him. Love your neighbor satisfies the need of the second commandment, but ought also to be our attitude to the people of the world, not it’s culture.

Place yourself at God’s mercy. Do all that He has asked you to do. Believe today that God has your best interest at heart, and wants to build you up into the person He has called you to be. Offer yourself and all that you are at His disposal, because you know, being the Master Craftsman that He is, He will bring about something beautiful with the pieces you present Him.

Pray that today God will do all this and more, for He cares for you. Know that God loves you, and loved us before we breathed, because He sent His Son to pay our penalty for us. Thank Him for the joy He brings and all the grace He has showered on you. Bless the Name of the Lord!
